    MEXICO CITY - Mexican authorities fired seven regional directors of the country's immigration agency Thursday following allegations that its officers in northern Mexico had delivered Central American migrants to kidnapping gangs.

    Salvador Beltran del Rio, who heads the National Migration Institute, or INM, described the firings as part of a wider effort to weed out corruption in the agency, which enforces Mexico's immigration laws. Mexican officials have vowed to fight armed groups that kidnap migrants to extort money or recruit them for drug trafficking.

    Wouldn't it make sense to hire these gangs to remove the illegals from the US?

    Kidnap victims forced into gladiator-style death fights by Mexican drug gangs
    June 15, 2011 - MEXICO'S most feared drug cartel was already known for beheading, quartering and even cooking its enemies, in the brutal narcotics war gripping the country.

    But of course....the mexican government probably had the whole 'secret service' making sure nothing happens to tourists as that is the second biggest money maker for Mexico! Wonder what the locals say about that kind of protection when they are thrown to the drug cartels aka alligators - and my apologies to the alligators.
    BTW, yes, Mexico is a 'wonderful' place. But NOT as wonderful as it once was!!!

    I'm pretty sure that if the mexican government had the power to make the "whole secret service" do anything, it would be to annihilate root causes...
